Pennsylvania police revoke carnival permit after ‘unruly crowd of juveniles’ seen beating someone on camera

May 15, 2024 | U.S. | 0 comments

Police in a Pennsylvania town said they shut down a carnival this week after an “unruly crowd of juveniles” ran amok throughout the mall where it was taking place, threatening the safety of families trying to enjoy the event and assaulting at least one person on video.

Surveillance video given to police by an unnamed business in the complex shows a mob of young people pouncing on someone, punching him from behind and kicking him when he falls to the floor.

The victim had arrived first, alone, and a group sprinted up to him before surrounding him and pouncing.

Some of the juveniles appear to pull one of the assailants off of the victim.

The attackers leave a second before an adult walks into view, and the victim stands up on his own and walks the opposite way.
